I’m sick and tired of being fat. Okay, throw things at me if you still think I’m a skinny bitch. But, having been thin most of my life, this is hard for me.
I was at the thrift store today. There wasn’t a thing I tried on that worked for me. My ass looked larger than life. I can no longer wear the short t-shirts or even normal t-shirts that I used to. And yoga? I really need to invest in a pair of control top pants.
Truth be told, I don’t just need SPANX for my hips, I need a whole body SPANX to hold in the inflammation.
Is it inflammation? Is it Babesia Belly? I don’t know. But I didn’t have it for the first 25 years of Lyme and now, I do.
Fatty Fatty 2 x 4. Can’t get through the kitchen door. Or the bathroom stall door. Nor can I get my pants or skirts over my ass.
How much weight have you gained with Lyme? Is it centralized in the Belly? Do you have a nice, jolly face now?
I lost weight when I first started on anti-biotics. Now, on the herbal regiment, I’m chunky. But only in places.
I know that it is very common to gain buckets of weight with Lyme, but is there a way to get rid of it? What is the best exercise to do that?
I’m considering a raw diet for the spring and summer. And exercise? Well, I still do yoga, even though it is limited. I can’t bounce. I can’t walk very far. And, sometimes I don’t want to walk at all, because seriously? Sometimes my air hunger is bad. Scary bad.
So, my exercise is limited, and I really need to get back to something. Maybe my Physical Therapist is right. Maybe I just need water.
Bring on summer. I’ll swim. And maybe get rid of the three extra tires over my belt line.
